Oberon Journal cover - with Kindle 2

I bought an Oberon Journal cover and used it with my Kindle 1 (with the original amazon cover, ripped in half, and some velcro). Well, now I've adapted it to fit the Kindle 2. It's actually a better fit, since it was rather tall for the K1.

If I can get the amazon hinge attached to this leather, I may buy a hinged cover and gut it. But for now:

Two strips of 3/4 inch elastic, 20 inch long, sewn into circles. Position them on K2, and pin in best position. Oh, and then sew in place.

Then, add sticky velcro to back. Gently press Kindle onto cover. Remove Kindle, and press harder on the velcro.

Add some felt or fleece to front cover. I only had baby blue on hand, but I may get some black to do it properly. Oh, and outside view of cover too, just so you can see the whole of this River Garden design.

Why didn't you just get the Oberon with the corner holders?

Because when I bought this, last October-ish, that cover was backordered. And this was $6 cheaper (plus I got a blank journal to throw around or do something else with). Oh, and at the time, they weren't doing the cover design that I wanted. *AND*, now that I've paid for this, I hate to buy another at full cost.

So I may buy the amazon K2 cover, rip out the hinge, and see if I can attach it to this!

Deb if you're able to put a hinge on it, I'll be interested.

It looks like the hinges on the M-edge cover might be easier to remove and glued or sew in the Oberon Journal. It cost the same as the Amazon cover.

Oh -- the not-real-leather one from M-Edge. You're right! Had only been looking at their leather one.
